Socks



I have been spending the last few months knitting socks. I have been knitting since I was in about third grade, and I've never knit a pair of socks. I've been wanting to try them for a long time now and finally over the summer I decided to get busy. It also helped that Joanne's had a big sale on all of their sock yarn one day when I was in there :) Look how super cute these turned out?!! I have found the perfect pattern too!!! Click HERE to find out for yourself. Wise Hilda has shared THE BEST basic ribbed sock pattern. They really fit!!!!



This was actually the first pair I knit from one of those free patterns they have in the yarn section at Michael's or Joannes. They turned out a little "slouchy", but not bad for my first attempt.

I bought TONS of sock yarn with full intentions of knitting a pair for all of my girlfriends for Christmas. Well, I've figured out it takes me almost a MONTH to knit just one pair....very slow going when you're using super thin yarn and needles the size of toothpicks!! I may have to revise my gift giving list :) But I have to say I have the sock knitting bug!

I'm impressed! I've never tried, socks look tricky.
